Treyarch goes black to the future... with zombies.
If there was any question about the success of last year's 'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,' the answer would appear to come in the form of 'Call of Duty: Black Ops III.' Likewise, the new era of AAA betas means that the Treyarch-developed new installment of 'Call of Duty' comes with one heck of a preorder bonus. That would be multiplayer beta access.
But first, the game's first proper trailer, which unsurprisingly, really enforces the game's dark maneuvers.
The Call of Duty: Black Ops III campaign deploys players into a future world, where bio-technology coupled with cybernetic enhancements has given rise to a new breed of Black Ops soldier. Through Direct Neural Interface (DNI) technology, players are now connected to the intelligence grid and their fellow operatives during battle. In a world more divided than ever, this elite squad consists of men and women who have enhanced their combat capabilities to fight faster, stronger, and smarter.
The most engaging and rewarding multiplayer offering to date debuts a new momentum-based, chained-movement system that allows players to move fluidly through custom-built environments with finesse, all while maintaining complete control over their weapon at all times.Treyarch also introduces its new Specialist system, which lets players choose and rank up nine elite Black Ops soldiers, each with their own look, personality, voice and battle-hardened weapons and abilities, fundamentally changing the way players engage in combat. Multiplayer is rounded out with an all-new weapon customization system that give players more powerful tools than ever to build and personalize that perfect weapon. Additional details about multiplayer will be announced at a later date.
No Treyarch title would be complete without its signature Zombies, rounding out the offering. Call of Duty: Black Ops III delivers a completely unique Zombies experience and is the most immersive and ambitious Zombies to date, complete with a new XP progression for players, adding unprecedented levels of depth and re-playability.
More footage 'Black Ops III' will come soon with a crescendo to occur at E3. Those looking forward with anticipation to the new multiplayer will want to get beta access. With 'Call of Duty: Black Ops III,' Activision has declared that Friday, November 6th will be the new Black Friday.
